Nothing like the old year going out in a blaze of glory, is there, Marty! Those are truly incredible shots.
Another of the "How Great Thou Art" moments you've shared with us all year.I can just see you out there in the pre-dawn, as the faintest thought of light begins to peek over the horizon---the mother-of-pearl sky glistening and warm steam of breath over coffeecup as you wait for the splendor. Then the glimmer begins, and like a great orchestra ready for the baton, the music of the sky starts softly, and in a swell of sound, the notes grow too sweet for our ears and eyes, til we're standing in amazement and awe.We're 8 degrees this morning, and I haven't even peeked out the windows yet---stay warm and keep posting these wonderful images, my friend.
simply MAJESTIC! it leaves a very beautiful memory of 2009 and promises a hopeful new beginning :)
